Are you up to date with the best practices for compliance in the tobacco industry? Find out how to develop a compliance strategy, and learn all about roles and responsibilities, and policies and procedures, in this webinar.

The Tobacco Control Act, which went into effect on June 22, 2009 regulates cigarettes, cigarette tobacco, roll-your-own tobacco and smokeless tobacco. However, in 2016, the FDA finalized a rule which extends their authority to include the regulation of electronic nicotine delivery systems (such as e-cigarettes and vape pens), cigars, hookah (water pipe) tobacco, pipe tobacco, and others.

Due to this, the FDA will be able to review new tobacco products which aren’t on the market, help prevent misleading claims by tobacco product manufacturers, evaluate the ingredients of tobacco products and find out how they are made, and communicate the potential risks of tobacco products.

During this webinar, our speaker will provide an overview of the regulations which pertain to various sectors of the tobacco industry, such as manufacturing, marketing, distribution, and other key operational activities. You will also learn the effective best practices for developing a compliance strategy, which includes the policies and procedures which need to be followed in order to ensure compliance.

An effective compliance strategy is important for any FDA-regulated organization, and that includes organizations in the tobacco industry. Understanding the regulations is the first step towards developing such a strategy, and it will also help you minimize cost in the long run.

All webinar attendees will be provided handouts including a presentation, which will help them make the most of the training received during this webinar.
